Roseville 2013, themed Reimagine U, brought together more than 675 local and regional business leaders, elected officials, and community influencers for this sell-out event. Attendees walked away with fresh insight from the keynote speaker, former head of training at Disney University Doug Lipp, on “The Magic of Exceptional Customer Service.” He relayed amusing yet poignant anecdotes that emphasized key insights in business development and retention strategies, all the while entertaining the audience.

Interactive breakout sessions included:

·    "Trust: How Organizations Earn It, Lose It, and Can Keep It" provided a platform for attendees to learn how to build consumer trust. Introduced and moderated by Edelman Public Relations, the panel was composed of business, media and local leaders--including W+P's Jack Paddon, second from the left--who will share their own stories, tips, and insights about trust in their areas of expertise.

·   The State of the City address was given by Roseville Mayor Susan Rohan and Roseville City Council members. It provided an overview of the partnerships, projects, and strategies the City of Roseville is pursing to remain nimble and fiscally strong to take advantage of a recovering economy.

A presentation of the region's 2013 Business Awards by GALLINA LLP included the Young Professional of the Year, Entrepreneur, and Business Person of the Year awards. Following the program, attendees were able to unwind at a networking reception hosted by the Westfield Galleria at Roseville, which was situated in the midst of the business showcase that allowed them to interact and get to know the region's local businesses.

"The day provided many opportunities for attendees to forge new business connections and highlighted the economic strength that keeps the region thriving. We want to thank all of our sponsors and attendees that made the day such a success and one that everybody is sure to be talking about for a while," stated Wendy A. Gerig, Chief Executive Officer of the Roseville Chamber of Commerce, which led the planning and coordination of the affair.
